The turning point in American history

Before I go, I will make a few brief posts.

Historian Robert McElvaine has a nice post here. It pays to have a historian's perspective on things sometimes, and to make predictions about the present.

He says

We find ourselves at a crossroads: Will the United States go the way of large portions the modern (in truth, anti-modern and ante-modern) Islamic World into religious know-nothingism or return to our nation’s Enlightenment roots and progressive thinking?

Well said, sir.
